On Road car question

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
My son who is 7 wants to buy an on road car with his Christmas money. He has $275 so Iím sure he could get something half decent. He will mostly be using it just for running in parking lots and out in front of the house. Some of the brands I have looked at are

1, Redcat which seem to be ok cars with a cheap price, Have read alot of mixed reviews for it. Parts will not be a problem as I live near the Redcat dealer in Brampton, Ontario.

2, Tamiya which Iím guessing is arguably the top of the line ones. The problem is Iím not sure which one to be looking at and also which one wonít be a pain to get parts. Live near both HobbyHobby and Great Hobbies.

If anyone has some info they would like to share would be great, or any advice.

Re: On Road car question

You could also check out HPI. Personally, I prefer HPI; however, you could also talk to your local hobby shop and ask questions. Also, check out their parts inventory and for which brand/model.

Re: On Road car question

Some of the guys I race with on the weekend of them both, and they brag more about the Tamiya(tt-01e). Myself I have the HPI sprint 2 (15 turn brushed motor) and find it great for racing but only on clean surface, stones would mess up the belts.

Re: On Road car question

for 275 u can get an hpi E10 or sprint sport for 240.. for sure parts wont be a hassle cuz every LHS carry hpi parts..

best to do is go on to hobbyhobby website cuz they list their prices there and see cheapest price they have and u can compare prices from other store

Re: On Road car question

The Duratrax Evader brushless is fast. The ARRMA Mojave is another fave.
E-Maxx, Stampede brushless 2wd/Mini E-Revo/Ridgecrest x 2/Evader brushless & an Orion Monster 4WD are my toys.
